CHICO, Calif. - Millions of people are marching all around the world this Friday to demand urgent action on climate change.

Locals are joining the global call for action on climate change, they're demonstrating right before a climate summit at the United Nations.

Chico Mayor Randall Stone said he is pleased to hear locals are out and about in the plaza, encouraging people to put pressure on himself to create action, in favor of doing something about climate change.

A huge crowd of high schoolers marched onto the Chico City Plaza, joining other organizations and interest groups, all rallying for action.

Reporter Stephanie Lin spoke with a number of folks who said they are rallying because they want their voices heard, and want the world to know that climate change is something to be taken seriously.

Action News Now will have more coverage on the rallies tonight at 6 p.m.

The last two days saw quite a bit of rain in Northern California. Today we could see more but the showers look to be more isolated today than in previous days. Highs today are expected to reach the upper 50s to lower 60s.
